BOOK EXCERPT:

Jean-Jacques Rousseau created the autobiographical genre in 1766 when he began his Confessions. Before him, readers were familiar with Christian apologetics and memoirs, but not with a modern autobiography. This book examines the role Rousseau requires his rhetorical reader to play, if he be in earnest, and it offers the contrasting reactions of real readers who when faced with the final version of the text were stunned by what they read, for the Confessions went far beyond all expectations in their belligerence, their intimacy of detail and their overwhelming critique of the social institutions of the ancien régime. The study shows how readers past and present refer time and again to the same passages, always heavily embedded with caveats and exhortations to the reader.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Hailed for its coiled eroticism and the moral claims it makes upon the reader, this mesmerizing novel is a story of love and secrets, horror and compassion, unfolding against the haunted landscape of postwar Germany. When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover—then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.

BOOK EXCERPT:

All the poets considered in this volume -- Jose Angel Valente, Francisco Brines, Claudio Rodriguez, Angel Gonzalez, and Gloria Fuertes -- view their work as a starting point in a creative process in which the reader plays a central role. Their emphasis on the mutability of meaning leads to the consideration of broader linguistic, existential, and philosophical questions.
